Have you heard of this air travel "tip"?

Jump to last reply

I told a friend I was so disappointed that Zicam had taken their gel swabs off the market. Besides having had such fabulous results from them in not catching a cold any time I ever started to feel one coming on, I also used them as a preventative measure when, just prior to boarding a plane, I would always use one. Being confined in such close quarters with so many people who are often sick, is a concern. She told me that she carries a small plastic bag with Q-tips, to which she has applied Vaseline, and she then applies a small amount of the Vaseline to the inside of her nasal passages before boarding for a trip. She said this is two-fold in that it keeps moisture inside of her nose, and it also traps any germs. Has anyone ever tried this?
